This paper is a preliminary investigation towards employing Visualization as a potential alternative to analyze Differential Evolution search as against the typical theoretical and empirical analyses. The usefulness of scatter plots and difference vector visualization has been observed on six Differential Evolution variants. Simulation analysis reiterated their potential beyond analyzing mere convergence. It has also been observed that scatter plots and difference vector visualization can be employed to detect premature convergence and stagnation.
